What Makes a Great Run?

Today-for me-it was: 

Some of this.....

A little bit of this...

Finish it off with this... 


5 miles at an 8:29 pace. Certainly not going to be toeing the line with Kara Goucher, but I'll take it!

What makes your runs great?


  1. Nothing better than a great run. I think my best runs are those long ones shared with friends in the perfect weather conditions. Maybe followed by some time chatting over coffee!

  2. HA!! that last picture is hilarious! Saw 'click' on skinny runner's blog..I'll have to give it a try. Nice run!! Thanks for your comment on my blog!! So appreciate it...I think I need to try the 'very structured' route running wise if I'm going to meet my goals this year. I agree, I think structure on the running side of things helps with the kid 'chaos'! Isn't that why we run, anyways... to take a deep breath and have measured success?! Look forward to following your blog!

  3. that is a HIGH FIBER DIET! hahaha. Nice fast run (kara schmara -- I like real runner blogs, not unreal runners).

    it's ok that you've never heard of Thor. So cute ;) you can keep up with pop culture on my blog, cause I'm a name dropper like that...

  4. I'd like to read more about this click stuff? This is the first I've heard of it. Ha! That last pic...ha ha! Your run sounds great Allison. I hope you win the Kara Goucher book! :)
